Nationals' Max Scherzer: No longer starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer will not start Sunday's season finale for the Nationals, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. Erick Fedde will take his place.

Per Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post, Nationals manager Dave Martinez made the move because both the Dodgers and Rockies have clinched playoff berths. It was reported earlier in the week that if Colorado were still fighting for a playoff berth, Scherzer would work for the Nationals. Instead, Mad Max will finish another outstanding season with a 2.53 ERA, 300 strikeouts (12.2 K/9), 51 walks (2.1 BB/9) and an 18-7 record in 220.2 innings. Unfortunately, fantasy players counting on Scherzer during their championship chase have to find alternatives. Considering this one takes place at Coors Field, Fedde (5.24 ERA in 10 starts) is only a desperation replacement.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Uncertain for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer is expected to start Sunday's season finale if the Rockies have postseason implications on the line, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Colorado is coming into this series one game up on the Dodgers in the National League West, so unless the Rockies are able to lock up the division before Sunday, Scherzer will likely take the mound one last time in 2018. The right-hander admitted that it's "up in the air" as to whether the Nationals will shut him down or not, so be sure to monitor this situation over the next 48 hours.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Fans 10 to reach 300 strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (18-7) allowed one run on five hits over seven innings to earn the win against the Marlins on Tuesday. He struck out 10 and did not walk a batter.

Scherzer reached the 300-strikeout plateau for the first time in his career with Tuesday's sterling effort. The 34-year-old now has a 2.53 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 300:51 K:BB over 213.2 innings, and lines up to finish the season at Colorado in Sunday's regular-season finale.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Strikes out 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out 13 across seven innings Thursday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.

Scherzer allowed back-to-back homers to Michael Conforto and Jay Bruce in the third inning, but otherwise had little trouble working through the Mets' lineup. His 13-strikeouts were his most in a start since June 5, though he has double-digit punchouts in six of his past 10 starts. He ranks third in the National League in ERA (2.57), but leads in both strikeouts (290) and WHIP (0.92).

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Stumbles against Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (17-7) took the loss Friday as the Nationals fell 10-5 to the Braves, coughing up six runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings while striking out six.

The right-hander never settled into a rhythm after a scoreless first inning, and Scherzer was clearly bothered by the humidity on a warm night in Atlanta. It was his shortest outing of the season, and just the third time in 11 second-half starts he's walked multiple batters. Scherzer will take a 2.53 ERA into his next outing Friday at home against the Mets.
